This unusual cottage at Berrington Hall has views across the Capability Brown gardens and its parkland. It is situated in one half of the entrance archway, which was designed by Henry Holland, who also designed the main house. The Triumphal Arch was formerly the coachman's home, more recently it was used as a shooting lodge. The cottage has its own private garden and as guests you have access to the gardens and parkland when the house is closed to the public.

    Cosy cottage

    Cosy cottage, nice and clean. Lovely gardens and estate at Berrington to walk round after hours and fabulous opportunity to stargaze! Free WiFi would have been nice

    Made enjoyable...

    Lovely gardens at Berrington Hall, children's playground also much used once public had gone home. It was great that the children could run "free range" across fields and meet nature close up - we saw frogs, newts and bats. All great fun for two children who live in a terrace house in the middle of a town. Being able to book bikes would be GREAT! We just can't fit anything else in or on our car so this would add an extra dimension to our holiday.
